Dana Derichsweiler's cafe has a cute menu filled with tasty Americanized dishes from Italy, Asia and south of the border, along with great breakfasts and a solid espresso bar. But we really salute the Walnut Cafe for its all-American values, exemplified by Pie Day every Tuesday, when the selection and price of the delicious housemade pies are especially good.
